Photos: Jamila Woods LIVE at The Star Theatre Portland
Singer and songwriter Jamila Woods has been paying dues in the music industry for quite a while now, and she’s finally getting some much deserved spotlight with her sophomore album LEGACY! LEGACY!, a soul kissed modern masterpiece which dropped last month. In addition to the chart spots and critical acclaim the album is recieving, Woods has been on the road for weeks serenading adoring fans at packed and sold out nights across the country. We caught one of the closing nights of the tour at the historic Star Theatre in downtown Portland, Oregon. With tour openers Nitty Scott and one-woman-show Duendita (who was incredible) to set things off, everyone was more than ready when Jamily finally floated onto the stage with her excellent band. Playing most of the material from LEGACY! LEGACY!, Jamila displayed some serious star power with a pitch perfect and energetic performance. Glowing with a huge smile between each song, it was evident that Jamila she hasn’t quite gotten used to seeing sold out crowds singing every word along with her.
